Must buy! For everyone. Period.
It should be mandatory to be a member of any and all airgun communities.

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

I agree that it is a "must buy" - but for me I just could not get used to the over lever pressure required and the "pinch" factor... :(

OTOH - my Zoraki HP-01 Pneumatic pistol is a breeze to pump up and shoot with 1 or 2 pumps and even at 3 pumps I don't mind the force required to close it... :wink:

Love my P17. I got mine at Airgun Source it Peterborough. Local to me so I picked it up. They are usually about the same price as most sellers and matched another sellers price once when I asked... Very happy I have a local supplier!

Well - I broke down an ordered in another in a long line of P17s that I have bought over the years...

Will give it another try and see if I like it enough to keep it this time... :mrgreen:

I was going to ask Airgun Source if they would match the price but I did not want them to think I was just being cheap. They are my go to store. See something next time I will ask. Bought both of my P17's at Canada Shooting Supply. CHEERS!

That's a better deal than the Marksman 2004 I bought at Walmart in Buffalo back in 2004. It's the same gun as the P17, just a different name. Back then I remember paying $35 USD for it, which is around $57 CAD in today's money.
By the way, I haven't even changed the seal on mine yet after all these years and it still shoots pretty much as good as new.
